Beauty And The Beholder

General World | By Aditya | 2009 Trackbacks (0) Comments (2)   

Beauty, reports say, is based on the symmetry of an object. Symmetry though is not so divine.

Symmetry – Regularity, Evenness, Equilibrium, Stability, Proportion

Beauty like symmetry has an imperfection, a repulsiveness attached to it... it is too apparent and palpable...Obvious to the naked eye and easily noticeable.

Ugliness on the other hand means asymmetry which makes it unclear, indistinct and ambiguous... making it obscure and vivid.

We take beauty for granted and thus are attracted towards it, whereas ugliness we attribute to evil, malice and hatred.

Our Universe for instance might look like having a certain pattern and thus stunning but in its symmetry lays ugliness and chaos, thus making it wonderful and exceptional.

Beauty can be recreated, ugliness is unique.



This Is Your Life, And It's Ending One Minute At A Time...

Welcome to the plastic age people... We have (supposedly) “evolved” from the Stone Age to the Plastic Age in around 10000 years. Ten thousand years for us to make plastic our new God. From worshiping the Sun and the stars to worshiping plastics, we have come a long way!

We live in glass cabinets and synthetic houses; we earn working for companies that invest in meaningless numbers and pointless stocks and shares. Or we work in factories and industries which produce junk and garbage which we are told to buy for no genuine reason and which we buy because we have nothing else to do. Today, now, as I type what I think, it strikes me how severely we are enslaved to the influence of technology. It has been eons since I have used pen and paper. We deal with graphical interfaces, talk into plastic rubble, interact over cyber networks and engage in pastime with artificial intelligences.

What next? How come we arrived here? Is this the correct permutation... cause reality is just another permutation - isn’t it?

Most of us (or it’s just me) suffer from the Restless heart syndrome... where we are in a void, a vacuum – where it is difficult to come to terms with our present positions. I mean when I was born the computer wasn’t a household accessory nor was the internet the only way to interact. Yet, today we use plastic cards as money... a long way from the barter system, facebook to catch up with friends and virtual reality for recreation.

Are we like what Tyler Durden says – “Man, I see in Fight Club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential and I see it squandered. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables — slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won't. We're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

While the present world marvels at all they’ve built and fabricated, future generations will ask them this – Is this all you could come up with? Is this what you’ve left behind for us? Much ado about nothing!



The Answers To Life, The Universe And Everything...

Bipolar Disorder | By Aditya | 2009 Trackbacks (0) Comments (6)   

Just found out that the answer to life, the universe and everything is actually 42 and not what we thought it to be. (Seriously just Google this - the answer to life, the universe and everything)

Well I am still confused, dazed, oblivious and in too deep with the very reason behind the answer to life. And I also found out that the only way a person will feel alive is when the person gets out of his/her comfort zone and is ready to set new expectations and change.

Betty commented on my “My Virtual Outburst” by saying this “XLNC, u are just 21, u have plenty of time to discover answers...” So I thought of replying by a post.

The problem is I don’t want to FIND or DISCOVER answers anymore... someone just give them to me! Because I am sick of all the dilly-dallying and beating around the bush, wasting time finding answers to life’s simple questions.

Coming back to me being just 21... Let us just look at some of my options – can I become (from where I am right now) an astronaut or a pilot or a journalist? The answer is a MAY BE with a very small percentage being yes. WHY? Cause by being where I am right now, life has deleted a lot of my ambitions and goals. Anyways by following rules, regulations and definite norms I bind myself together tighter and tighter and in doing so I become someone who is a mechanical man more than a human. So I wish to fall into an abyss than kneel to THE PLASTIC AGE.

Am I a function or am I a feeling?
Am I just a corpse searching for my soul?
The destined answer lies far away...
In search of truth I wander and stray.
Am I alive or waiting to be dead.
Whats all this noise inside my head?


Anyways, there has been a delay between my posts due to a short vacation but in other news my next post is on its way pretty soon! So readers of my crappy blog rejoice.

P.S. - Yes that is my pic on the right. And I am 22 now but was 21 when I wrote the post "My Virtual Outburst" a few months ago before i actually posted it.



Will We Ever Change!

India did not invent the zero. India did not discover zero. India wasn’t there when zero was conjured. The only thing attributed to India is the concept of zero as a number and not merely a symbol for separation.

Many people feel proud to be Indian like I do; but actually we should be a bit ashamed as well. India is a great country, not just in size but also in diversity, culture, economy and science. I agree that it takes time to bring development, infrastructure and education to every nook and corner in a country like ours. But we as a country are not what we are recognized for in the world’s cultural, economic and social scenario. We are recognized for what we were (or actually what our ancestors were). We are recognized for being perfect, intelligent, hard working and talented. But most of us who are all these end up in developed countries, not their fault entirely; it’s the country’s fault as well. The government gives jobs (and high level ones at that) to people who aren’t completely suited for those posts.

The government does this cause it is infiltrated by corrupt, dishonest, crooked and fraudulent people. But corruption is present in every country and every system and I agree. But their level of corruption does not hurt the country’s progress.

Tourists, Diplomats, Ambassadors, emissaries, envoys, representatives and all kinds of other people from all around the world come to India to seek the way out of chaos because India is the solution source; it is the answer to life. Yet we Indians don’t have the time for introspection and seek the answer for a better country. I’m not saying India is doomed, nor am I saying that India is headed towards downfall; I’m just saying that India is not heading at this point of time in the right direction.

We have inherited from our ancestors - corruption, superstitions, religious dogma, political dynasties, caste divisions, untouchability, serfdom, dowry, female foeticide and infanticide. Most of these were abolished and reduced by the British, who in exchange for this work took away most of our valuables. In this instance again, we Indians are too at fault for not being united when necessary.

We should have taken from them the ways to life a perfect life; the art of contentment; living as one united India. We are taught in schools and colleges the ills of our dogmatic culture and religions; about sati, dowry and caste divisions. Yet we after learning all this go on to do all these ills knowing that the government banned them and that these acts are intolerable. These things have made me hate society and I am sad to say that I would leave India at the first chance I get. And the reason is ironically the fact that I love India.

India is a great country. Indians are not worthy of a country like India.



My Virtual Outburst!

Questioning the unanswerable?

I've become blind to shallow categories on which people establish one as successful or not.

Q. What is the meaning of life?

Through a civilization lasting millennia we as a species have answered or at least tried to find the answer to death and beyond, but have never sought an answer to life... What is life? What is its purpose? What is the ultimate goal? Why are we here? I need answers!

Q. What is the difference between loyalty and friendship?

Is it the amount of trust, or the amount of dependence? Am I seeking the cure or the disease?

21st Year Outburst?

I hate people for being too deeply involved with my life – it’s called a personal life because it’s MY LIFE, not yours!!

I love myself and whatever I do, because one life is all I’ve got

I hate society and all who are for it

I hate people who want to prove society wrong

I hate people who show off and are pompous for all the wrong reasons

I love movies and books for being so damn awesome cause they create a world which can be altered

I wish people stop caring about my disorganized life and get a life for themselves instead

I wish I could spend the rest of my life in peace and harmony and remove all the chaos

I sometimes hate you blog readers because you’re wasting time reading all the crap I post in the name of blogging - like this post!

I hate the world for travelling too quickly and too deep in the wrong direction

I sort of prefer spirituality and people who are spiritual because they too have nothing better to do, just like me

I hate myself for the basic reason that I don’t understand life

I hate one more thing, I hate advice - good or bad (unless I ask for it), because I should be taking the decisions in my life, you shouldn’t
